LAST NIGHT I WAS FOLLOWED
I cannot express the level of panic that hit when I realized I was being followed. I was in my vehicle, a truck close behind. At first I didn’t think too much of it due to the area I was driving (on the freeway). I got off at my usual exit, which leads to my rural area. The headlights I could see in the rear view mirror let me know it was a truck behind me. It never occurred to me it was the truck that had been behind me for 35 minutes of the drive to get where I now was. I had now been on this road about 12 minutes. My first thought was call 911. I reached for my phone and realized I didn’t have it with me. Now, full fledged panic set it. OK, find a public place, pull in and lay on the horn. There was no public place. However, about a mile more down the road was a home with a barn on the right. The barn was lit up and the door was open. I could see several people in the barn. I swerved up into their driveway so fast it spun my car around. Those in the barn came running out just as I got out screaming for someone to call 911.
The person in the truck actually drove slowly by this home, but, there was a man walking his dog on the road. He got the plate numbers of the truck. The police arrived. Yes, I made a complaint. Due to the knowledge of the license plate number being known….the police will handle it. There were witnesses.
Lesson learned, always make sure before leaving the house my phone is with me. Be more aware of who who around me, if it looks “suspicious” it probably is. I’m extremely cautious due to life experiences (many of you know). Yet, this one time I let my guard down due to being in a hurry. It won’t happen again Thank you for allowing me to “vent”.
?, I am so sorry this happened to you. What is the world coming to? So many people want to hurt and cause harm to others.
I’m so pleased that you had your wits about you and was able to outsmart this person and did not get hurt. I’m sure you will feel a little uneasy for a while. You did do the right thing by calling the police. You’ve no idea if you’re the target.
Be safe, be well!
I just read this post and want to say, thank u for sharing it! Thank God things turned out the way they did! We all need to be more careful. My computer was hacked a couple of days ago, and that was a scary experience, but being followed is much scarier.
